Maybe you just get it... but I didn't.  Maybe I just forgot along the way.  Before you read any other self-help book, read all 176 short pages of Mastery: The Keys to Success and Long-Term Fulfillment by George Leonard, and then read it again.  I find myself going back to my notes again and again to remind myself of what it is to be on the road of mastery in anything I want to do.  It always helps when I think of straying off my plan to get better at something.  Buy Mastery on Amazon.
